a first birthday

On Saturday, May 1st, Cedar turned one year old! What a beautiful May Day!

This is how you open presents, right? :P

Blurry, but happy!

We gave him a walking/riding toy that works on the grass. :)

We invited his family & friends to join us at noon to celebrate with burgers & cupcakes.

Mummi & Pappa got a cool water table for Cedar. He was sleeping when people started arriving, so the big kids tested it out for him. Turns out, they all got wet. Go figure! :P

Cedar was excited to check it out, once he woke up & joined the party.

Everyone enjoyed checking out the chicks in their newly completed run.

Kenton worked the barbeque & grilled up some delicious burgers. We were excited to try some local ground beef, after watching "Food, Inc". :)

Cedar had a hard time sitting still while opening presents, but he's had a great time playing with all of the cool gifts he received!

Cedar is so very loved. :)

Striking a pose with his cool, new dump truck from Jacque & Stu.

After helping to blow out the candle, I guess Finn thought Cedar needed "help" tasting his cupcake. I caught him in the act of sticking his finger in the frosting! :P

All of the kids gathered around...waiting "patiently" for their cupcake. We let Cedar enjoy his first taste, then shared with everyone else. :)

He didn't go crazy for his cupcake right away, but quickly got excited & started taking bites.

He sat for a long time, licking his fingers, trying to get every bite, saying "Numm, numm" the whole time.

Macey liked hers too!

The best we could do after a long & very enjoyable day. Thank you so much to all who helped make Cedar's first birthday party a success! :)
